Keely Schaefer / Account Supervisor
A native Texan, Keely was born and raised in Austin, with graphic design in her blood. Her mother founded Kolar Advertising from the ground up, a business that Keely eventually took part in.
After graduating from Angelo State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing, Keely worked at Walt Disney World Resort, an experience she refers to tongue-in-cheek as “magical”. From there, she went on to work alongside her mom at Kolar, managing accounts such as Dell, Baylor University, and the US Army.
At our graphic design agency, Keely does many things: from running our social media campaigns to supporting clients and the Creative Suitcase team through every process. Keely’s bright and down-to-earth attitude also makes you feel right at home.
Favorite travel destination:
We take a mother-daughter trip every year to a beach. My favorite is the Cayman Islands. It’s this crystal clear water that just oozes all your worries and stresses away.
Place you’d like to travel next:
My dream destination is to start in Cape Town, South Africa, and then head up the country from there. I want to see great white sharks and lions in their natural environments and hopefully not get eaten in the process.
Something that’s always in your suitcase:
My i(pod/pad/phone). I can’t go anywhere without music in my ears. If I’m traveling, walking the dog or grocery shopping, I’m usually rocking out. Everything from Lyle Lovett to Fun.
Superb. It just rolls off your lips. Say it with me… Su-per-b.
What gets your creativity pumping?
StumbleUpon. I swear I find something amazing every day.
If you weren’t working in advertising, what would you be doing?
Something with kids. Either teaching or maybe being a nanny for some big famous movie star.
Would you rather be able to fly or turn invisible?
Fly. a) Because how cool would that be? and b) I hate traffic.
